Hello current and future Kickstarter backers!
Welcome to Day Two!
We're just 25 hours into the campaign and already 37% funded with 35 backers. I am SO incredibly excited and thankful for the support and sharing so far.
More cool numbers: 9 out of 10 Kickstarter projects that reach 30% funding in the first week reach or pass their funding goals. We did it in less than a day! In other words, we're doing AWESOME.
After so many months of planning and hard work, I can hardly begin to describe the feeling of seeing the project launch, and this level of support flooding in immediately.
More Sharing, More Support:
At this point, almost 90% of our contributions have come from people in my social network and following. The more activity and interaction that Kickstarter sees with this project, the more likely they will include The Lotus and the Artichoke in Staff Picks and Popular Projects.
This would be a tremendous amount of additional visibility to thousands of Kickstarter visitors looking for projects. Let's turn up the volume!
I'm asking for your help to SHARE the page for my Kickstarter (shortlink: http://kck.st/QCTEV6) with your friends and followers on your favorite social networks and sites. Kickstarter prohibits me from providing incentives or bonuses for Likes and Shares, and spamming people is obviously not cool. So, I have to be careful asking for your help here.
However, there's absolutely nothing wrong with telling others that you like my project and want to share your interest in it. Hopefully others will get interested and pass it on further!
Consider it an act of generosity, helping to spread a meaningful message: a project celebrating and encouraging creative, compassionate, international culinary adventures!
